One of the most important steps in the naturalization process is the interview with a representative of the Bureau of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. It is critical to be as prepared as possible for this meeting. In this post we'll run through a few things an applicant should and shouldn't do during the interview.
First, people should dress as they would for an important business meeting and show up on time. They need to bring all their original documents and forms with them. People should know what's in their documents and be able to answer questions about them without constantly referring to them during the interview. People also need to listen carefully to the interviewer's questions and make sure they understand each question before giving an answer. If people don't understand a question, it is better to ask the interviewer to rephrase it than risk giving an incorrect answer. If people don't know the answer, say so -- people should not guess or say something they aren't sure is true.
